Program Description:

Tübingen NeckarTübingen is located in the Neckar River Valley, about 25 miles south of Stuttgart. The nearby nature park Schönbuch has abundant hiking and biking trails throughout the forest. Tübingen's 24,000 students dominate the comparatively small city of 85,000; Tübingen is ranked as the city in Germany with the youngest average population. It also boasts being ranked as the city in Germany that offers the best quality of life for its residents. This is attributed to its many cultural opportunities, the city's liberal politics and its academic flair. The Eberhard-Karls-Universität dates from 1477 - one of the oldest universities in Germany. While the majority of the university's liberal arts departments are in the old part of Tübingen, the modern Science Center is on the overlooking the town.

Academics

The Eberhard-Karls-Universität dates from 1477-- one of the oldest universities in Germany. While the majority of the university's liberal arts departments are in the old part of Tübingen, the modern Science Center is on the overlooking the town. In Tübingen’s historical center there is hardly a building or a square that is not linked to a renowned scholar. Tübingen notables include Hegel, Hölderlin and Schelling, Mörike and Uhland, Johannes Kepler and Wilhelm Schickard. 
The latest chapter of the University’s history is marked by tremendous growth – the boom in Medicine and the Life Sciences as well as in other scientific areas has led to an extraordinary expansion. The broad spectrum of subjects offered by the University of Tübingen promotes interdisciplinary communication benefiting research and has lead to areas of specialist research that have attracted attention from around the world. A large number of partnerships with other universities and research institutions add to the University’s international reputation.
